Many people have an idea of what working at a strip club is like.

However, one stripper has revealed what it is like to work an an 'empowering' venue.

Stripper Danielle works at Rude strip club in Liverpool, which is ran by owner Amy Gwynn.

Amy recently opened up to Daily Star about how she is on a mission to turn the industry from 'seedy' to "empowering" by creating a "sisterhood" atmosphere.

And it seems to working, judging by Danielle's comments.

In an exclusive chat with Daily Star, Danielle revealed what is like to work at the club.

Talking about how the female-ran club is different to others out there, Danielle told us: "The club is beautiful, which makes me feel proud to work there.

"The dressing rooms and toilets facilities we have are stunning – the best I’ve ever seen.

"I’ve danced for seven years and never seen anything like it."

She added: "There is also a really lovely atmosphere in Rude.

"The changing room banter with the girls is my favourite part of the job. That really doesn’t exist anywhere else."

Danielle said the changing rooms in particular are "empowering".

In many other clubs, strippers have to just change in the toilets which are used by customers, however in Rude, the girls have their own plush space.

Danielle said: "There's pictures up on the wall of our changing room of inspirations woman who have made a difference in the world.

"Woman such as Emmeline Pankhurst right through to Beyoncé.

"We are told to look at the picture and remind are selves who we are.

"I love that, it always lifts me up and makes me feel proud."

Emmeline Pankhurst was a British political activist who is best remembered for organising the UK suffragette movement and helping women win the right to vote.

Danielle said she also thinks the club benefits from having a female boss.

"Amy is like a friend, I feel like I can tell her anything personal or work related without judgement," she says.

"There’s always a cuddle available and a stern talking too if I need setting back on the right track which is sometimes needed. I don’t think a man could have that balance.

"As a boss I have a lot of respect for Amy because she will always give us constructive criticism when needed, she’s keeps girls in line but is always still your friend. It’s a rare quality I think."

Asked whether she feels she gets judged for being a stripper, Danielle says she feels like she didn't years ago and felt like she needed to hide her job from people.

However, she says that since working at Rude, she's felt more confident.

"I'm proud of what I’m doing and love to boast about being a Rude Girl," she says.

"People seem to be in awe of the job and interested to find out about my life."
